‘The Shorter The Matches, The Longer My Career’

Ronda Rousey

Last night, Ronda Rousey reminded everyone why she is the undisputed UFC women’s bantamweight champion as she dispatched of Cat Zingano in just 14 seconds.

With 5 Octagon wins in 16 minutes and 40 seconds spent in the Octagon, including 4 wins in the first round, it’s obvious that Rousey likes short fights.

She explained why on the Fox Sports 1 post-fight show:

“I like the quick fights. The longer the matches are, the shorter my career will be. I like them being short because I want to do this as long as possible.”

Despite spending just 14 seconds in the Octagon on Saturday night, Rousey admitted she was exhausted after such a long training camp, and preparation leading up to the fight.

“It’s the waiting, preparation, the stress and anxiety that takes it out of you. I’m exhausted.”
